What I find odd is that they say it won't work with 8x but what exactly would stop it from working? It should just bottleneck it if it were a requirement

The BFG Website does NOT confirm this issue.

I don't see any comment regarding two PCI-E slots at x16 speeds for SLI.

Moreover, I don't see nVidia making a distinction between 'SLI Certified' motherboards for the 8800's and for other configurations. They still just 'SLI Certify' a whole bunch of boards without exception. They likely would make a distinction if the dual x16 story were true, since they do make distinctions for PSUs.

My conclusion: overclockers.co.uk is incorrect.

Enough off-topicness now

The DFI board is the better overclocker and the one to get if you don't plan dual 8800's (Which you don't, since the rest of the rig will simply be too slow.)

Yes, its true I wont ever be running dual 8800s on a socket 939 machine. Dual 7800s would be the highest Id go (and even that is ~8 months in the future, if that) still loving the dual 6600GTs, so dual sli x16 is pretty much a moot point for me. This is the kind of stuff I wanted to clear up, again thank you guys for the amazing (and timely) input. Even my loyalty to ASUS is wavering, and the DFI is looking sweeter by the moment. D: Im converting, oh noes XD

I really cant wait to get this project moving, I already got a taste of dual while setting up my gfs new Athlon X2 system last weekend, and I need mooooooore.

So as it stands now, Ill get the DFI board, update the BIOS, grab the Windows XP dual core hotfixes, and then begin the long process of getting the opty to 3gHz on air. (my lapped AC Freezer 64 Pro is sitting in the corner in its box patiently awaiting the opty)
